What's a Wreck?

A Cake Wreck is any cake that is unintentionally sad, silly, creepy, inappropriate - you name it. A Wreck is not necessarily a poorly-made cake; it's simply one I find funny, for any of a number of reasons. Anyone who has ever smeared frosting on a baked good has made a Wreck at one time or another, so I'm not here to vilify decorators: Cake Wrecks is just about finding the funny in unexpected, sugar-filled places.

Now, don't you have a photo you want to send me? ;)

This Calls for a Celebration!

Would you believe someone's boss actually brought this into the office? (Or should I say, "The Office"? It certainly looks like something Michael would order for an office party, doesn't it?)

I love that someone - either the customer or the decorator - felt that "sexual harassment" needed to be illustrated. And I realize that the decorator can't be expected to be Picasso or anything, but check out how far the girl's feet are off the ground. Either that was the Spank Heard 'Round the World, or she's on an invisible step while Chuckles there digs for gold.

Before you ask, yes, I hear the boss got in some deep doo-doo. Can't imagine why, though; I mean, it's got a big red "NO" symbol over it, doesn't it? And all those spanking demonstrations were purely for educational purposes, so really, what's the big deal?

I love your blog... I just came across it yesterday and literally laughed until tears streamed down my cheeks.

A picture is worth a thousand words, but your writing really completes each image. Your sarcasm and witty conclusions had me in stitches!

Thank you for the laughter. The world can use as much humor as can be created. You rock, keep up the good work!

i have muscle spasms in my cheeks and tears streaming down them laughing about this cake and the commentary. wow.

I also used to work there. To make this funnier, there were times two years ago where we would have nothing to do so we would sit in the back and actually watch the office.

i like your blog, let me rephrase that... Your Blog is a breath of fresh air! I love how I can practically hear you saying some of the lines on your post. Too funny, honestly funny!

I'm sitting here, laughing, crying, snorting, sounding like a whining pig that can't breathe... woke my BF and got stared oddly at by the cat (prolly woke the neighbours too)

Then I start reading the comments... OMG... everything all over again, times 10!

As a joke, this is superb... on WAY too many levels - but if meant seriously, then I feel sad for the poor sod who ordered this... LOL

eh shut up and eat...

September 20, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Wow! I don't the last time I laughed so hard. Then, I spent some time cruising around the other posts and laughed some more!

Thank God for the "Michaels" in the world! How dull life would be...

Well done, Jen! Love your site!

It's only sexual harrassment if you didn't actually WANT someone to spank you. It's a very misleading illustration.

September 27, 2008 | Unregistered Commenterawriterswindow

Thank God someone else noticed that... What IS sticking out of his pants?!

Seriously, I love this cake!! (But I love this website even more!)

September 29, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterLaura

This cake is awesome and I have posted a link to it on "The Office" website I belong to.

What is even funnier is the narration and then the various posts. I have been laughing like crazy at the wonderful senses of humor of the people here.

Thanks for the laughs!!

I died when I saw this. Then I died, again, when I read the caption. Loves it!

October 5, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

I work in the field of sexual harassment prevention and complaint resolution. I wish I could bring this cake to the next meeting of my colleagues. They would all just laugh themselves to tears!

He is doing an arm curl with her. Explains why she is off the ground.

October 14, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

I love that you mentioned "The Office"! That made me smile! Love your blog!

Reminds me of the day I sent a guy friend (I'm a girl) in another part of the company, a special cupcake from the local erotic bakery. It had a nice pair of girls on it, which he would surely appreciate. But, he received it during a staff meeting, where they played the sexual harassment video. Lots of fun t hat day and a huge thank you from the entire group for making that the finniest staff meeting ever.

October 31, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Im sorry, to me it looks like she's up in the air because he lifted his arm and his whole hand is up , well you know...


November 9, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Best post ever!!!

November 23, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterSherry

At least they spelt "harassment" right.

December 5, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Looks like it is a bit 'deeper' than a mere pinch on the rear. I believe she is levitating in the air because he is lifting her to new heights. lol. This one is bad....just plain bad!

December 9, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

i love the office and i love this cake!!!! "the spank heard 'round the world"- put that on a pillow!!! thanks, jen!

December 10, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

There's nothing wrong with this cake. The feminazis are just always looking for something to bitch about.

December 24, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

February 1, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

February 21, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterNotJustAKid

OK... never seen fisting illustrated on a cake before...

Let's hope I never see that again... humanity will most likely be destroyed if this needs to be demonstrated in cake form... again.

Good lord he has his hand in her ass!

I am the boss that got that cake created... The best part is that it was a raw cookie dough cake custom made at my brother's bakery. Delicious and hilarious.

OMG!! I haven't laughed this hard in ages - my stomach hurts. I'm a HR Consultant and this was great!

June 1, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnn

June 10, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterJenny

I'd like to know what it is popping up from his belt line. if it is what i think it is, i'll take that piece!

July 22, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Hahaha, WOW. That is a Michael Scott cake if I've ever seen one! Fantastic!!!

August 13, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterChrista Jeanne

A case of sexual harassment or a comedic ventriloquist routine? A t-rex arm or a prosthetic? Headless woman or Olive Oyl?

Obviously, this cake has more than one layer.

August 14, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterRachel

I just laughed until I cried...I haven't done that in a while, so thanks, and kudos to you =)

September 3, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

she was so asking for it! Would not one normally stand when getting slapped on the ass? Unless one were expecting a slap on the ass would one lean such as the young lady in the drawing. It just doesn't make sense.

October 15, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterjc

What the flip...

December 7, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

is it me or does that man look...happy? look at the bottom of his shirt!

December 8, 2009 | Unregistered Commentersarahstoletheworld

It looks to me like she was asking to be "harrassed". LOL Look how she is bent over!

March 29, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterTiff

The Season 7 premiere of The Office fit with this cake perfectly!

September 25, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMallory

hahaha Where has the hand went. Thats more than sexual harassment..surely??! lol xx

October 7, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterCupcakes Lady

My employer would have me thrown under the jail if I brought something like that to the office. LMAO

May 7, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterweb design houston

The lack of detail clearly shows the humor and it could possibly be the bosses subtle way of handling a complaint! GENIUS I FREAKIN luv it!

August 17, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterHopeM

...why is the man using a puppet?

December 7, 2011 | Unregistered Commentersnow

..and I think the guy has a boner...

February 11, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterAllioop

but they spelled 'sexual harassment' correctly.....bonus points for that, right????

February 19, 2012 | Unregistered Commenteralisa

This would get alot of laughs in my office (I work for a non-profit). And no, I'm not going to attempt to recreate this cake!

March 6, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterAllison

Looks like a proctology exam to me. So are they really just stating, "No proctology exams at work?"

June 21, 2012 | Unregistered Commentersheila anderson

Errr....if I saw this cake I'd seriously throw it at someone.

July 30, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Maybe it's just a cake rendition of the office EEO "Say NO to Sexual Harassment" hand puppet show?

September 30, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterLori

I see it as, his hand is shoved way up her backside and he's using her as a hand puppet. Thus, her feet are off the floor...
